Ok thanks for clearing that up. Can't help you with the turtles but I'm sure if you let them go in a gutter in Downtown, there is a rat that would welcome with open arms and teach them martial arts.


As with the food talk...

Let me just say that the Penne Pesto at the Daily Grill in Downtown LA is friggin amazing. I love it and can't get enough of it. Also, I was at the Library Bar last friday and our group was told to keep it down because we were being too loud. I've never been told to be quiet at a bar in my life. I doubt I'll go back there. They have a decent happy hour too.

Let me just say that the Penne Pesto at the Daily Grill in Downtown LA is friggin amazing. I love it and can't get enough of it.

i've been to daily grill before but never tried the penne pesto. my favorites around my work (vernon) are mike's hockey burger - the pastrami special is outta control and the taco truck (las compitas?) is on the corner of hooper ave and compton ave across from the smart and final. i get the torta de barbacoa with everything and the chile verde sauce. damn

I respectfully submit the following: Since it is a "lounge", the talk should be "lounge" like. That means we talk about food, drinks, wives, girlfriends, mistresses (for those that have them since I do not), girls (relatively clean), books, movies, cars, bikes (motorcycles that is), philosophy, religion, politics (peacefully and respectfully), the good old nature and the good old humor.

I am very much the kicking back with a drink in hand and relaxing type outside of work and I love a good conversation as much as a hand crafted brew, 30 year old scotch or a nice cab or oaky chardonnay with a long smooth finish.

Now, for those of you in your 20's, some of the above may not be quite your speed and that is cool. But...when I am not working, writing, and have time to kill on the board, that is my purpose on here.

That's good to know for a couple of reasons:

1. Pesto sauce is very easy to screw up, and it's the one I'm most finicky about. It's always good to know when a place serves one that's consistently good.

2. I finally have something to look forward to ordering at Daily Grill. Most of the food I've eaten there has been unremarkable at best, and awful/stale at worst. I really don't enjoy eating there, but I'll give this a try the next time I'm there.

I'm 28 and I recently (in the past year) have taken a liking to scotch. I'm still trying to figure out what I like. I think I like the highlands the best so far. I've tried a lot of different stuff. Had a bottle of Laphroaig 16 year old which was incredibly smokey. It tasted like a campfire. Highland Park is one of my favorites. Oban is pretty good but I've only had it a few times. Tobermory was one that I really liked originally because of its lack of smokeyness and its different flavors.

It is good to me so I'm curious to hear what others think. It was recommended by somebody at work who kinda feels the same way as you do about the Daily Grill.

I also love the pasta bar at the Brasserie which is next to the Sheraton inside Macy's plaza (between Flower/Hope and 7th/8th). I love pasta!

Try Aberlour, 16 year. For the price, it's one of the best and if I had an every day great scotch, this is it.

Regarding pasta, I could introduce you to a place that would forever ruin you for any other pasta dishes but that would require a trip to OC.

I live in Long Beach. What is it?

I see Aberlour on Bevmo's site. I'll pick one up when I get paid in a few weeks. Unfortunately, on my budget I've been buying stuff in the $40 range (our favorite word) so it has limited my selection. However, I did have a company that was treating me buy me a $35 cup of something when I firsted started trying scotch at the Seven Grand bar in Downtown. I don't remember the name anymore but it was great! In case you haven't been, I'd check this out before or after a Kings game when you have a chance. It is a whiskybar.

I am going to invite a group of people over the next couple of weeks from this site to join me for tapas and drinks. It's a restaurant on one-half and a wine & tapas bar on the other. I'll PM you later on it and add you to the list...

I love my pasta as much as I love my beer. I am skeptical of being ruined for any other pasta, because that happened to me a couple of years ago when I was introduced to Farfalle in Los Feliz. I grew up with a crazy Italian grandmother so I am very picky when it comes to pasta. This place specializes in tomato based sauces, their arrabiata being the crown jewel. What's your place called and what dish changed the pasta side of your life?

Don't you have to fly frequently to get those though.

If I spent the money to fly all the way out to Los Angeles then Zad better be offering more than dinner.

I think I will actually make a trip to LA when the Kings get to the Finals....I hope that happens before Zad dies from liver failure.

It's been at least 3 years since I laughed this much after reading a post.

In other news, at least everyone can finally see how often icyfur actually posts now.

The arrabiata is made to order, fresh daily. You decide the heat and degree of courage.

If I reveal the answers to your inquiries, I fear I will ruin the potential for great discussion when I clink your glass and you apologize for ever doubting your ruination.

Little chance of that. Moderation and all things Greek.

Ever the confident one. I will gladly apologize if applicaple, then again, if it is, I'll be too busy shoveling the object of said ruination down my gullet to muster a quality apology. Like I said, I likes my pasta.

It will take a mighty dish though. Farfalle almost makes me forget grandma's cooking, which is about as close to blasphemy as a secular fellow like myself can get.

There is no such thing as 'a little gay'. There can be no grey area. Didn't they teach you that in Sunday school?

Well clinking another man's glass sounds "a little gay"......Eating his pasta would be infinitely more gay.

How about that?

Didn't help. I am reminded of one of my favorite writers of this century, Gore Vidal. I will save that one for the glass clinking as well.

Gore Vidal! I will clink my glass to him I would quote him if I didn't think I would have to delete my own post I loved his public comments on Sept 11th, I freakin' worship his awesome debates with William Buckley , and also loved his novel Julian -- I just loved the character and Roman history is always fascinating Also, of course, his galling of The City and the Pillar in the face of society at the time Hilarious. I love people that stir the pot.
